Check list

Remember that conditions in the mountain can be very extreme and can change rapidly. You must be prepared for the worst.
All our gear is of an appropriate quality for the recreational skier/boarder. To help you have a safe and enjoyable ski trip.

Essentials

SOCKS
Need at least 3 pairs for the week.
Only wear one layer long sock with no ribbing.

LAYERS
The secret of staying comfortable is to wear several thin
layers. Wear cotton or polyester, avoid wool and nylon.
Under salopettes wear leggings NOT track suit bottoms.
Do not mix cotton and polyester.

  • POLYESTER
    2 layers under jacket
    Thermal BASE Layer
    Microfleece TOP Layer
    or

  • COTTON
    3 layers under jacket

THERMAL LINING GLOVES

For added warmth.

GLOVES OR MITTS
Windproof, breathable, snowproof, warm and with palm
patch. Mitts are warmer. Boarders look for wrist
protection. WEAR AT ALL TIMES.

NECK PROTECTION
To cover lower face and add exta layer around neck.

EYE PROTECTION
Must have UV400 lenses.

  • Goggles for bad weather
  • Glasses for good weather
  • If only one? GOGGLES

HAT
You can be as silly as you want in style but it must cover
your ears and be tight enough to stay on while skiing.
ALWAYS take it with you even if you ski with a helmet
a hat is good for travelling or an evening out.

JACKET
Windproof, breathable, snowproof and warm. Fits with room for layers underneath.

SALOPETTES
Windproof, breathable, snowproof warm and not too tight.

SUN CREAM AND LIP BALM
It is very drying in the mountains and the UV is strong.
ALWAYS have IT with you and use frequently.

HELMETS
Added protection, now law in some countries or it is school policy. Include a Novelty Helmet Cover to stand out in the crowd.

Nice to have

APRES SKI BOOTS
Depends on resort and activities so check with staff. You will need footwear with good grip.

BUM BAG/SMALL RUCKSACK
Better than stuffing your pockets full.

FACE MASK
Especially in N.America, high resorts and early season.

WRIST WARMERS
To keep the gap between jacket and glove warm.

INFLATEABLE PILLOW
For the journey, pack away in a pocket or bag.

NECK RING, A NEDY OR A SKUFF

  • Neck Ring: to cover lower face and add extra layer around neck.
  • Nedy: can be worn as neck ring or exta layer between the helmet and your head, not a bad idea if hiring a helmet.
  • Skuff: combination of above neck and head in one!

GLOVE BUDDY
Elasticated wrist strap glove saver. Fits most gloves without sewing. We have all dropped our gloves!!

HANDWARMERS
For the odd times when you just can’t warm up.

SKI TIES
Keeps skis together for easier carrying and for identifying skis.
